Perrottet launches review of Barilaro’s commercial role appointment

Sky News political editor Andrew Clennell says the “last issue” NSW Prime Minister Dominic Perrottet has had to deal with is this “controversial appointment” by former NSW Deputy Prime Minister John Barilaro for a post he established when he was a minister.

Perrottet announced that he has ordered a review of Barilaro’s appointment to the post of senior state trade and investment commissioner for the Americas.

“Perrottet was forced today to submit this for an inquiry,” Clennell said.

β€œIt is very difficult politically to send the former deputy prime minister to the city that never sleeps.”
